First Day in the Provo MTC

Hey Mom and Dad! 

They gave us 20 minutes to email our parents. Gosh it has been incredible.  First off, my companion is the man.  His name is Elder Ayres and the first thing he asked me was "Elder, Do you like basketball?" And we then became the best of friends.  He is super humble and he is Brazilian.  The Spirit is so strong here and I am loving every minute of it. I'm still not quite sure the schedule of everything and how to get around but I have only been here for like 7 hours haha! But you guys never have to worry about me at all because I am right where I need to be and right where the Lord needs me to be and I am so beyond blessed to have this opportunity to better prepare myself to serve and become stronger than ever.  We really stressed our purpose as missionaries today which is "To invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ." That is amazing and I am so happy to be able to do that, I have learned so much in my short time here already and can't wait to continue to learn and become the most effective missionary I can be through Heavenly Father! I love you guys and I think my p-day is Wednesday so I will talk to you next week!
